Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

What a beautiful tribute to a grat inspiration in your life. I would have loved meeting him.

I miss my father, too.


Such a loving tribute to a special man in your life. He certainly left the world a better place for having lived. You do seem to be your Father's Daughter. I miss my Dad too --- I'm glad you repeated this. I know a lot more about you now. I'm sure he is very proud of you.


Now you did it! When I read this piece this am, I had tears streaming down my face. It made me think of my dad and I miss him. But I always feel as though he is around me. I just got back from visiting my mom and all of my brothers were there also. On Mom's 85th birthday we went to a pottery factory in the small town where her dad grew up and then went to where the ancestral home once stood. It was a lot of fun to be together again. It has been many many years since we did something like that. Probably more than fifty years.

I somehow think that your dad is very proud of you as he watches from on High. I look forward to learning more about you.

Giant hugs,


Damnit, Lauren! Thank you.


i will always feel like my daddy is my ultimate hero too. Even though I havent always shown it. Our dad the Ham, the Hero, the Man. I only hope that someday I get lucky enough to have a man even half as cool as my daddy. I am so glad that Anthony has him to raise him right. Happy Dathers Day Dad. Love from the other side of town......
